  • This was worth the time spent travelling here from Gold Coast, especially for the small dinosaur exhibition. We couldn't spend much time but made sure to catch all the natural history collections.  more »
  • There were a lot of stuffed dinosaurs and Australian-specific animals on display, and it was a place where you can relax with your children because you can enjoy them for free. NASA's space exhibition costs about .25 for a fee, but I want to go, but I quit because my child didn't like it. If you cross the bridge in front of you, it is a city, so access was good.

  • Very lovely place to take every member of the family. They had a lot of exciting science exhibits on display. Very knowledgeable staff, especially those responsible for explaining the planets and chemical reaction. There was a lot to see and do and it was value for time and money. It's great to have an annual pass if you want to be able to come whenever you want. There are other places to go and to see while there. It was a refreshing experience.
  • Haven’t visited many museums but happened to visit this one by coincidence during my Brisbane trip. Loved the decor and the art displays here. Staff were very helpful and were keen on showing me around. Free entry was another plus point. Loved the whole experience. A must visit for locals and tourists.
